La Jolla Wellness Studio tells you how to fix it — and how to reduce stress while doing it.
“We’re results-oriented,” noted Ted Barduson, co-owner, along with his dad, Gene, of the venue at 7660 Fay Ave., Suite F.
The father-son team, whose studio more closely resembles a doctor’s office than a gym, are pioneering the MyoMetrix Method.
A science-based fitness mode, MyoMetrix measures a number of body factors, including body fat and muscle mass, to create an efficient workout pinpointing body areas needing improvement.
MyoMetrix also balances a person’s biochemistry, adjusting the level of two critical body chemicals — the stress hormone cortisol and lactic acid produced during stressful workouts — both of which inhibit muscular development.
“Our technology has impact on your results,” said Gene Barduson about what differentiates the Wellness Studio. “It’s more prescriptive and improvement measured. I don’t know of anyone else who’s measuring the improvement side.”
Together, the Bardusons say, they’ve discovered some simple truths about muscle development while exploding some commonly (and widely) held misconceptions about physical fitness.
“It’s a myth,” Ted Barduson said, “that you must work out for an hour, profusely sweat and feel really sore afterwards. That’s what we’re combating.”
Ted Barduson said their research has shown that “the intensity of the exercise is far more important than the duration.”
The Bardusons claim that their patented MyoMetrix method optimizes their standard 15-minute workout by utilizing cutting-edge sound vibration technology to oxygenate red blood cells and maximizing workout and muscle-building results.
The Barudsons believe negating stress is integral to promoting wellness.
“You meet stress head-on, not bury it,” Ted said.
“Other fitness modalities don’t focus on stress,” Gene said, adding that “wellness is as much about the emotional and spiritual as it is about the physical.”
Gene Barduson said research has shown many people are discouraged from working out in standard gyms because it’s time consuming and they don’t like the atmosphere. He said those issues have been properly addressed at La Jolla Wellness Studio.
“We wanted to create a place you could go where a workout is easy to do, it’s not a big chunk of time, it’s a nice environment and you don’t get sick of it,” Gene said.
Inconsistency in working out is a big problem with getting people to become and stay fit, say the Barudsons. “They’ll do it for a period of time and then stop,” Ted said.
“Our instrumentation gives you measurements you can use for a lifetime,” Gene noted. “It’s our improvement formula.”
Ted invited the public to drop by for a visit, try out the equipment and hear about the studio’s innovative new fitness strategy.
“You can get the same results here as you get in an hour elsewhere,” he said. “We’ve proven it over and over.”
